Empowered Parent Class

In collaboration with the University of Utah, the Glendale Mountain-View Community Learning Center offers a Padres Comprometidos class to Glendale parents and community members. The class taught by CLC staffers and U of U personnel, helps address some of the common areas of concern in home to school communication, and trains parents to maximize their interactions with teachers and administration in the school environment. The 2017 cohort graduated ten proud parents, including Osman Osman who serves on the Glendale School Community Council.

“The program is a powerful tool for parents and teaches them many things they may not know,” commented Osman.

The program lasts 12 weeks and offers 3 University of Utah credits upon successful completion. “We are very excited by the positive parent feedback we have received. This class has had a tremendous impact on the daily interactions of our parents with their children. We certainly look forward to seeing this program continue next year.” commented Michelle Amiot, a Glendale Middle School administrator who attended the graduation ceremony.

Generous Book Donation

Linda Paoletti – Chair of the Book Bank division at the Assistance League Of Salt Lake City, visited Glendale Middle School bearing gifts.

In support of Glendale’s annual summer reading program, Linda presented the school librarian with 800 new middle grade readers as gifts for Glendale’s 6th and 7th grade students.  Each year the Assistance League generates funds from the sale of goods in their thrift store and uses them to make generous donations of books to local schools. This year Glendale was one of a handful of schools to benefit from the Assistance League’s generosity. Chris Gesteland, Glendale administrator, was on hand to thank Mrs. Paoletti. “We are always grateful for our community business partners and their support. Increasing literacy is an important priority here at Glendale.” commented Mr. Gesteland.

Glendale's Choir Champions

At the annual Salt Lake City School District Choir Festival, Glendale’s choir faced off against choirs from Hillside, Bryant, and SLCSE.  

Despite stiff competition and some performance day jitters, Glendale’s choir were undefeated. They achieved perfect or near perfect scores across all evaluation categories which included; tone, quality, rhythm, blend, expression & technique, diction, and poise. The choir was led by their proud music teacher Paul Daraban: 

“Our students did a beautiful job. Not only did they sound great, but their behavior and decorum was impeccable”.

It was Glendale’s day to shine. We congratulate our students on a job well done.

District Visual Arts Exhibition

The Salt Lake School District held its annual visual arts show which showcased the work of students across the district. Glendale students participated, visited the exhibits during the exhibition and had an excellent opportunity to develop their arts education.

Beloved Community Art Show

The Beloved Art Community Exhibit was held at the Salt Lake Community College, South Campus. The Beloved Community Photography Project provides photography equipment and instruction by SLCC faculty members to students in local schools. After participating in classroom activities that explore photography techniques, students are then encouraged to take photos which highlight or reflect their own communities. 37 Glendale students participated in the project and 4 received an honorable mention. Way to go Glendale artists!
